The Soviet DB-2VK-108 bomber (daytime high-speed bomber with two VK-108 engines) at the static strength test bench at the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) of the USSR.

This bomber was developed on the basis of the Pe-2I aircraft by a design team led by V. Myasishchev from the summer of 1944. From Pe-2I, the new modification was to be distinguished by an improved propeller-driven group, an increased bomb bay, an altered configuration of the nacelles, improved aerodynamics and larger wheels.
